Bryce Harper's Favorite Teams: The Ones That Won

Everyone likes rooting for a winning team. Winning teams are fun, and winning teams provide any fan with a sense that they, in some small way, contributed to the winning. Winning teams allow fans something to be happy about to break up their mundane (or not so mundane) lives.

But of course, cheering for winning teams just because they win (more commonly known as "bandwagoning") is frowned upon in the sports world, for good reason. Nobody likes a frontrunner, and the thrill of victory is much sweeter for a fan when you've stuck through the bad times.

Because of this, few will like Bryce Harper's choice of favorite sports teams. The 2010 No. 1 pick was on "The Mike Wise Show" with Holden Kushner and Brian Mitchell on 106.7 The Fan, and was asked about his favorite teams. His answer, according to Nationals Enquirer:

  • Bryce Harper is a Yankees fan.

Guess Bryce Harper really IS Baseball's LeBron James.

Dan Steinberg has a full transcript of the exchange here. I wonder what happens when if the Nationals start winning.
